Speak Up Speak Now! (formerly the Paris Project) is an outreach program of the Florida Holocaust Museum. It is an 8- week summer program currently offered at select Pinellas County recreational facilities. Middle school age students engage in discussions, activities and field trips that examine concepts such as: identity, us and them, bystander, upstander, universe of obligation, prejudice, stereotypes and propaganda. The teens hear from guest speakers that include: crime victims, Holocaust survivors, refugees, law enforcement officers and community activists.
At the beginning of the program, students are asked to take a pledge to speak up in the face of injustice. Throughout the summer program, they create artwork that is used as part of an on-going public awareness campaign.
